silk city fibers: nylon ribbon



Made by Silk City Fibers


Silky and smooth nylon ribbon, great for weaving and creating fiber art. This ribbon is strong and versatile, and looks beautiful woven into a gauzy and drape-able fabric.

This nylon ribbon is made by Silk City Fibers, the only yarn company left in Paterson, New Jersey. Paterson was nicknamed ‘Silk City’ for its role in textile and yarn manufacturing, specifically its dominance in silk textile production in the first half of the 19th century. Rachel, the founder of Weaver House, grew up fifteen minutes from Paterson and her grandfather worked in a fabric dyeing factory after he returned from the Vietnam War. Most Paterson factories eventually closed or moved south where there were no labor unions (at the time), and then finally moved overseas.
